This slimline 5 Amp power supply provides up to 80W of power, still plenty of grunt for many smaller Electroplating Kits. It is an ideal power supply for our 4 or 10 Litre size Electroplating and Electroforming Kits. It is also an ideal alternative for our Gold Plating Kits. (NOTE; If you are purchasing a 20 Litre Kit or larger, please consider the upgraded 40 Amp Power Supply. This will ensure you have enough current (amps) available).
This unit is able to provide a constant Volts or constant Current (amps) which allows total control of critical ampere delivery which is a must for electroplating. This allows total control of critical ampere delivery which is not a feature of our 15 Amp power supply. Simply select your power range, then adjust the controls to obtain your desired outputs. It has a variable output and current from 0 to 5A. Available are 0-16V @ 0-5A, 0-27VDC @ 0-3A, and 0-36V @ 0-2.2A. Output voltage and current are displayed on large, easily read seven segment LED displays. Output is provided via banana sockets which will accept insulated banana plugs. Includes banana to alligator clamp leads. Incredibly compact in size and light, weighing only 1 kg.
The amount of current (amps) required for electroplating is determined by the total amount of surface area that is in the plating bath. Larger Kit sizes (eg. 20 litres and above) allow more surface area to be plated at one time and therefore more current (amps) are required. This high powered dual controlled switchmode power supply will deliver up to 40 amps which is ideal for our larger Kits. This unit is able to provide a constant Volts or constant Current (amps) which allows total control of critical ampere delivery which is a must for electroplating. It has a variable output voltage from 1 to 15VDC and variable current from 0 to 40A. It features overload, short circuit, over temperature and tracking over voltage protected. Output voltage and current are displayed on large, easily read seven segment LED displays and incorporates an intelligent fan control program that checks the fan at power on and adapts the right speed to ensure a quiet and efficient operation. The maximum current output is 40 amperes continuous. Incredibly light, weighing only 2.9Kgs. Includes mains power cable and positive and negative power cables.
Black Zinc Chromate 1 Litre
$44.00 Inc Gst
You receive 1 Litre bottle of Black Zinc chromate pre-mixed working solution. This is a 1 litre working solution, this is NOT mixed with water, this is a pre-mixed working solution. Black Zinc is a trivalent chromate conversion coating for zinc.
Black Zinc is an extremely popular chromate option given the desirable black finish it produces. It is used to produce a black chromate conversion coating on either zinc or cadmium electrodeposit by simple immersion. This process gives a final attractive glossy black finish with very good corrosion protection. Unlike the other three Jane Kits chromate options, the Black Zinc chromate is not a concentrate that requires mixing with water, it is in fact sold as a ready mixed working solution. The freshly zinc plated articles are immersed in the Black Zinc working solution for 30 to 90 seconds to produce a tough and very desirable attractive gloss black finish. Black Zinc treatment bath should be run at a temperature between 22 to 31 degrees Celsius.
For Black Zinc passivation, an additional final water dip is required. The makeup of the final water dip should include 30% JPK Aqualac. This process will eliminate iridescence and can be introduced across other chromates if desired. JPK Aqualac can be purchased separately and is found in the Chromate / Passivating category.
NOTE parts should be activated prior to chromating using Metex IT which is available for purchase in the Activators category.

The Jane Kits story began when John, a vintage motorbike restorer realised that it would be much more convenient and economical if he was able to plate his own parts in the home workshop. So John decided to source and create his own plating kit and hence Jane Kits was born. John went on to receive numerous awards for his meticulously restored bikes with parts plated using his ingenious new kit.
